Overview

An in-depth guide to prepare your family for the widespread outbreak of any deadly disease like COVID-19 or H1N1

New pandemics hop around the globe every year. In 2009-2010, it was H1N1 that spread uncontrollably, infecting over 60 million people around the globe. In 2014, Ebola virus claimed 11,325 lives with just 28,652 cases—a stunning 40% mortality rate. In 2020, COVID-19 (a highly transmissible coronavirus with a mortality rate equivalent to Spanish Flu) jumped from Wuhan, China, to a world-wide pandemic, causing economic panic and an uncontrolled global outbreak, all despite the best efforts of governments and health organizations.  So, what will happen when a pathogen as easily transmitted as H1N1 or coronavirus and as deadly as Ebola enters a population somewhere—anywhere—in the world?

Prepping for a Pandemic provides all the information needed for the day when that horrible eventuality becomes a reality. It provides readers with a life-saving plan that guides them step by step to a state of medical self-reliance. It covers every important issue including stocking food, storing water, developing contingency plans, learning first aid and nursing skills, as well as establishing quarantines and sick rooms. With checklists, tips, and plans, this book outlines the necessary supplies and skills one will need to stay healthy when doctors, hospitals, and the world’s medical infrastructure become overwhelmed and unavailable during a pandemic outbreak.
